The Full Sail Banked Slalom is back for its 11th season! - REGISTRATION IS NOW FULL

With the snow this year, it's sure to be an exciting course through the Tunnel of Love gully. Things have changed a little this year in regards to registration and categories, so please read through everything and check back for updates in the coming month. 

Course: The race, once again slated for the famed Tunnel of Love gully, will start at the Mazot and finish just above the bottom of the Cascade chairlift. There will be hand dug berms and a little top and bottom enhancement courtesy of the MHM grooming crew. The terrain is fast and technical so please be conscious of your limits when registering, and ski/ride within your ability. 

Helmets are required.

No uphill traffic to venue.

There will be plenty of fun for racers and spectators alike at the Mazot. So come ready to hang out with our event sponsor, Full Sail Brewing, and cheer from the sunny (optimism) deck! 

New this season, categories have been altered and prizes will be given to the top three finishers in each division. 

Entry fees include: registration and admission to the Full Sail packet pickup party Friday March 31! (Registered groms get one additional entry to party for parent/guardian to sign necessary waivers)

Registration will be open until filled or until 2 PM on Thursday, March 30th. Time of registration will not determine bib number or when you race this year, so register early as registration is on a first come first serve basis. No day of registration!

Format: The race is a 2 run format, with start order TBD by MHM race & competition crew.  Best time counts!  Information on start order and times will available at the pre-registration party on Friday March 31st.
